Acts 23:1 And Paul, earnestly beholding the council, said, Men and brethren, I have lived in all good conscience before God until this day.
Paul lived with a desire to keep a good, clear conscience. What a goal for all of us to have! The Holy Spirit will make our conscience more sensitive than normal. He will speak to us and direct us.
The most important person that we have to please is the Lord Jesus. Paul was striving to keep a good conscience before God. Pleasing God is the highest motive that we could have!
